DR2 Records are proud to announce the return of the original Irish punk-rockers, Therapy?, with their new studio album, “Crooked Timber”.

“From the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing was ever made.” - Immanuel Kant (18th-century German philosopher)

Produced by Andy Gill (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Killing Joke) and mixed by the bands very own Andy Cairns with the aid of Adam Sinclair, the band state “Crooked Timber” focuses more on rhythm, rather than melody. Admitting that while it is a heavy recording, it’s not exactly the obvious path for Therapy?. Why? Front-man, Andy Cairns has the answer: “I guess we’re always challenging just what makes us Therapy?. After so many years, if we were formulaic about it, we’d have gotten bored with the band long ago. “The album was written together as a band, and each track has its own concept and inspirations. They took a while to write and we’ve taken our time to write them.” Andy explains: “The recording is about celebrating people’s quirks, the things which make us unique. These days everyone tries to fit it, instead of just being themselves. The songs examine what it means to be human - To realise that we are the only living things on the planet aware of our own deaths.
